The 2010 edition of Electric Zoo is around the corner and this year NovaNation DJs Armin van Buuren and John Digweed feature amongst old-school pioneers, trance gods, techno guys and electro-house celebrities.
The festival launched successfully in 2009 with 26,000 people passing through the gates to see over 50 acts across four stages.

Armin van Buuren, host of NovaNation’s A State of Trance, will headline the main stage on Sunday, following sets from Laidback Luke, Boys Noize, Fedde Le Grand and a rare appearance by Moby. John Digweed of NovaNation’s Transitions will headline the Sunday School Grove stage alongside Buuren.
Other notable additions to the festival’s 2010 return include The Chemical Brothers, Benny Benassi, ATB, Axwell, Kaskade, Above and Beyond and Melbourne’s own Dirty South.
Whilst the cast of acts have been making music for a specific nightclub space, event organisers say the production creates an experience-not like a club-but a unique experience within a unique environment.
“We hired a great production designer. He does all of Kanye’s stuff… He’s designing all of our tents, plus the main stage, and each will have their own feeling and vibe,” says festival organiser Mike Bindra.
New York’s biggest electronic music festival Electric Zoo takes place at Randall’s Island Park from noon to 11pm on September 5 and 6, 2010.
